I live in a little house near the sea with a temperamental black cat and my shaggy loveliness of a husband.
I love all things glam, especially pin-up girl dresses and great shoes. Sparkly shiny things bring me great joy and delight.
I relish munching into a fat juicy steak or a succulent roast chicken.
I love Christmas, especially putting up the tree laden with twinkly things and sitting beside it after dark when it's all lit up.
I like lots of art on walls and ornaments and plush rugs and big soft pillows.
I like the sky when it brings bright bold colours and sunny days so I can go for long walks and breathe in the fresh air.
When I write, I like to have a favourite cocktail close to hand. For me, each book requires its own special cocktail to match it. For Lion, I chose the gimlet. The mix of gin with tangy lime, and a sugar and salt mixed rim made a perfect match for the sweet and sour mood throughout the book.
Writing, reading and drinking cocktails!
